Title: Repairing Ghost image???
Post by jevgh on Oct 17th, 2007 at 5:14pm
Who can help me out, please? Got rather frustrated...

After HD crash, I'm unable to restore my drive from a -- previously tested -- spanning Ghost image because I cannot read 32 sectors (out of 10.000.000+) from one of the DVD's... Ghost just quits in such circumstances. Commandline parameters  -corrupt and -ignoreindex do not work in XP (can see few files, but nothing extractable), and restoring with bootdisk under DOS quits with error 19235. Tried everything to get the data from the DVD (other drives, freezing, sector-by-sector copying) but no luck. I also used the image files from HD, filling the gap with zero's gives an error ('corrupt file'), as well as just eliminating the missing data (making files shorther): 'corrupt packet length'.

Does anybody know if (and how) I can substitute the lost data, with hex editor or something. I would be very, very (very) grateful. I don't mind missing 1-2 corrupted files, but missing 20 Gb just because of 32 lost sectors seems too unfair... -- Thanks!

previously tested

So, you did an Integrity check after creating the image file, and it passed?!

The only resource I've seen for handling a corrupt image file is this:

How to handle a corrupted image file

But, unfortunately--those who have tried this have not reported success  :( !

Recently, there was a thread that mentioned correcting an optical disc image problem by carefully cleaning the disc that caused the problem--worth a try?!

You may want to try to open the image using Ghost Explorer.  If you succeed, then you may be able to retrieve individual files.
